How many of you offer some form of Web 2.0 tools to employees? Raise of hands. Keep hands up if you’re specifically providing… Instant messaging Wikis Blogs Capability to tag and search for content within the company network Social networking Anything else?
Overall, two-thirds (69 percent) of respondents offer some type of web 2.0 technology as corporate applications to their employees. Instant messaging (50 percent), wikis (30 percent) and blogs (23 percent) are the most commonly reported web 2.0 offerings with internal collaboration and employee communication/ knowledge management most frequently cited as the primary reasons for adoption.
Adoption is increasing, especially at large companies
Blogs Internal Communication Marketing/PR – mixed results Wikis Collaboration Knowledge Capture & Management (cultural hurdles – large consulting cos.) Community Sites Customer Engagement – depends on the community, how well the company “gets” its customers Social Networks Company Directory on Steroids – talk more about both of these later
According to Forrester, while large businesses are spending more on employee collaboration tools than customer-facing Web 2.0 technologies right now, that trend is expected to reverse by next year. By 2013, investment in customer-facing Web 2.0 technology will dwarf spending on internal collaboration software by nearly a billion dollars.
Forrester’s forecasts show strong and steady growth over the next five years, with total Web 2.0 expected to reach $4.6 billion by 2013 Social networking, mashups, and RSS.
Of course, as with all new things, there are risks. Great excitement about Whole Foods CEO blogging back in 2005
But last year, Mackey was caught posting comments at Yahoo Finance using a pseudonym, saying good things about his company and bad things about competitors – in particular, Wild Oats, which Whole Foods has since ended up buying.
It’s been almost a year since Mackey left this post for his readers.
Companies are building online communities to engage with customers – a shift to two-way marketing Pepperidge Farms: Connecting through cookies – stated objective: help women improve their social lives. Product downplayed. $2 to $2 million campaign. I don’t really get it.
Barbie: Play games and shop. Hyper commercial – down to the animated ad that plays on the TV in the room to the left of the screen!
Dove: Social cause. Girls: Confront and conquer your biggest beauty hang-ups here. Moms: Interactive tools, workshops and guides to use at home and in your community.
Nike: Training tips & videos, competitions, gear
Jockey: humor, competition, user content, ratings
Pepsi: plenty of “stuff” (music, gear) and entertainment, but also co-development (design our new can)
IBM’s Blue Pages a great example of using these tools internally for knowledge sharing and collaboration. This iteration was fairly basic, with e-mail, phone, basic info, nice picture of Roo Reynolds, IBM’s metaverse evangelist, who created the next three slides.
next iteration goes much further. People connecting to each other Employees tag themselves – and others can tag them too Roo says he would never have filled in a skills profile the way other people have tagged him. Can’t always anticipate what’s relevant to other people. Keeps connections – e.g., a person may move on from working on a particular project, by tagging, can refer people to others who work on it now RSS feeds
IBM’s system lets employees take a defined group and view the profile pages of the individual members. It creates mashups, maps of where people are – you can drill into a particular community or subject area, see who’s working in those areas. Networking diagram - who you know that knows somebody who knows somebody who knows something relevant useful if you’re looking for a subject matter expert or looking to influence someone you don’t have a direct relationship with
Indeed, while external applications are growing, today, internal collaboration and employee communication/ knowledge management are by far the greatest uses of enterprise web 2.0
Innovation social computing creates a new stage for innovation, where ideas are more easily exposed and patterns spotted. As communities work out the kinks of new ideas in public forums, innovative thinking coalesces and ownership/leadership emerges. Productivity scenarios: Development: Access to shared solutions and knowledgeable people speeds time to delivery. Call centers: the ability to find information and communicate in real time with coworkers shortens call time. Design: collaborative work on shared artifacts accelerates the early stages of a project and simplifies future iterations. Employee engagement; attracting/retaining younger workers Younger workers have expectations of highly interactive, mobile and ubiquitous computing http://www.cio.com/article/330863/Tips_for_Social_Computing_in_the_Enterprise

All these years, we’ve been trying to get people to collaborate, share knowledge. How much invested in KM attempts back in the late 90s? And it never worked. This works – social tools make it easy for people to share, and it makes them want to share. But companies have to both enable and channel that.
Shift from command and control to enablement and facilitation. The attraction of social computing is also its challenge for management. It thrives because it is highly participatory, self-defining, self-directing, emergent and viral. Communities form around seeds of ideas that grow over time into larger patterns. Keep a distance to avoid inhibiting engagement, participation. Use of social computing cannot be mandated; it must simply be facilitated. Reasonable arm's length policies regarding content and style will also allow the voice of the group to reach equilibrium on its own. To achieve the best results, enterprise social computing must retain the perceived freedom of the Web. http://www.cio.com/article/330863/Tips_for_Social_Computing_in_the_Enterprise
If you aren’t directly controlling things, you can’t prevent things from happening. Have to shift from a mind set of being able to prevent anything that might not be in the ideal corporate framework to being able to react quickly when undesirable things happen. Or not reacting. This requires more attention. It also requires letting go. We’ve got a ways to go.
IT Decision Makers Divided on Adoption of employee-introduced technologies in the Workplace One third of respondents (36 percent) monitor usage of unsupported technology for risk while 35 percent shut down unsupported technology as soon as they detect it and 29 percent monitor the business case for mainstreaming the technology.
One thing that’s different about this tech wave is that corporate IT is not leading the way. In many ways, employees and customers are leading this wave. 2001, Marc Prensky -- cultural difference relating to whether a person grew up with or without fairly accessible electronic media. Those who did he referred to as digital natives while the rest who function within an ITC world are digital immigrants. Digital natives are often loosely grouped as people who were born after 1980 with ubiquitous access to digital media. First computers, then the Internet, as well as other progressively more advanced technologies.
The following slides are examples of ways people are doing all these things… (Create, Communicate, Share & Engage, Participate & Influence, Be recognized) They’re creating videos – these are the result of a search for CIO videos – not your typical millennial fare! – sharing them with the world, rating and commenting on others.
Machina is weird and silly – but some companies are even playing around with this
There are currently over 24,000 Facebook apps – the vast majority of them created by individuals unaffiliated with Facebook
You’re probably familiar with Flickr and other photo sharing sites; slideshare is a platform for sharing slideshows and presentations. You can view – with or without audio – download, comment, embed in your blog, post to various other social sites and more – a very rich environment, and easy to use.
CIO partnership with LinkedIn – find out who you’re connected to at the companies we write about or at our upcoming conferences.
